Guest Blogger!

I don’t know if there is a ‘proper’ way in the blogging world to host a Guest blogger, but this is how I’m doing it!

I would like to introduce you to Arianna and her fun filled article about summer fun when you have a budget that is a little less than that of a Celebrity 🙂

A Celebrity Summer For Your Family!

     As summer has arrived, so have some of the busiest days of the year!

My friends and I sometimes daydream about what it would be like to have a summer switched with one of our favorite celebrity’s. Instead of arranging schedules and driving kids everywhere, we would fly in private jets to remote beaches, drink mimosas and discuss the latest gossip in designer bikinis and sundresses. That may not happen, but discussing the celebrity life sparked our imaginations. What about creating a summer for our families modeled after celebrities and their lives? Quick brainstorming brought about some fantastic ideas. So here are 3 ways that you and your families can create some fun and glitzy summer memories!

CELEBRITY SUMMER: ALBUM RELEASE PARTIES- As artists like Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé and U2 are partying it up with their new album releases, fans are roaring in anticipation. Concerts are taking over cities across the countries and these popular musicians will be flying from country to country via a pricey private jet, to meet their adoring audience! With brand new music and exciting performances, this summer is sure to be a hot one- on the radio and off!

REALITY SUMMER: DANCE OFF! – It may not be a standing-room-only concert with screaming fans, but your family and friends can have your own fun with an amateur dance-off! Encourage everyone to prepare a song and dance to perform! You can even set everyone up into teams (be fair by evenly dividing up ages and talent) and give them time to prepare and perform a team number. Let everyone vote for the winner, and have some good music related prizes like iTunes gift cards or fun colored headphones!

CELEBRITY SUMMER: ELLE STYLE AWARDS– Most award ceremonies celebrate singing or acting talent, but this awards show is always a fantastic venue for some of the most fashionable and trendy designers, as well as their products. Setting the standard for what is hot and what is not, celebrities and models bling out with different styles and hopefully avoiding the “what not to wear” lists!

REALITY SUMMER: CLOTHING/ACCESSORY SWAP PARTY– What says girl time better than being surrounded by racks of clothes? Have every gal go through their closets and bring out those rarely or never worn items and accessories for a swap party! As you gather together to swap accessories, dresses, pants, shirts and purses, have some refreshments and girl talk for the perfect, money-free shopping spree!

CELEBRITY BABY BIRTHDAY PARTY: MASON’S 2ND BIRTHDAY– When Kourtney Kardashian’s little one Mason turned 2 years old, his birthday party sure was a smashing hit. Surrounded by a Thomas the Train Engine theme, the party crew took a trip to Serendipity for lunch and paid a visit to the Gold Coast Railroad Museum! Little Mason must enjoy having such a doting mother!

REALITY BABY BIRTHDAY PARTY: DIY “ARTY” PARTY– Give the little ones a great way to commemorate their early years by having a paint party! Make a “Create Station” for them complete with a protective tarp, and put out things like finger paint and play dough for the children to have fun with! Getting messy has never been more fun! Don’t forget to colorfully complete it with a confetti cake and sherbet!

Though it may not be through record deals, paparazzi coverage or the finest restaurants, there are so many ways for us mothers to create some wonderful summer memories that are original, creative, and can last a lifetime!

Hi Ken, I’m Barbie.

Is there a rule that a beautiful person HAS to marry an equally beautiful person? No? Ohhhhohoho no no no.. I think there is. And once you have become said amount of beautiful, and of the legal age, I believe there is an agreement that you are required to sign, stating that you WILL marry a person of equal to or greater than beauty to yours.

Exhibit A: Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth just announced that they are engaged.

I’m not saying im a Hannah Montana fan, but I did watch (and bawled my eyes out in the first 20 minutes) The Last Song, in which these two love birds co-stared in. It is hard to deny that she is pretty, some might say beautiful, I would not call her sexy.. she is 19! thats.just.wrong.

Liam on the other hand.. I would not hesitate to call him a delicious hunk of yum! Have you heard him talk?! That Australian accent is.to.die.for! I have not yet seen The Hunger Games, but I’m hoping he takes his shirt off at least once in it..??

As I wipe the drool from my chin, I have to admit that they are a beautiful couple. Wishing you many years of happy Hollywood marriage (cause we all know how those turn out..). Advice: Don’t ask Kim K. for marriage advice. And pleeeeaaaaassssseee, as much as I want to follow your every day lives, don’t get a reality show.

Exhibit B: Victoria (Posh Spice) and David Beckham

I don’t think two HOTTER people could be together! These two for sure got hold of the agreement and signed on the dotted line.

Unfortunately, I don’t think all beautifuls were told about said agreement..

Exhibit C: Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman

She is hot. He is not

Exhibit D: Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony

She is hot. He is not

In my short presentation above.. you can clearly see that if you sign the agreement, you will have beautiful babies and be married for a long time! If you don’t sign the agreement, you will still have beautiful babies, most likely divorce, and possibly turn into a train wreck.
We can all hope for a Barbie and Ken relationship.. I know I am!
